Reviewer: akohler - - February 2, 2012
Subject: Interesting though standard
Nothing new plot-wise: standard Hollywood-esque dystopian future, anti-corporate action film opening. Good visually and well put together though. The fast pace made following it a little challenging, but that's understandable given the length.

I'd like to see more.

Subject: Freeware tells a story
Very nice. It tells a story without words. A bit of art unto its self I would say.

Subject: Setting free the slaves of the information age
Fast moving action flick, where a RISK playing computer game wants more from life.

It was a bit too fast moving, but thats what you get for 6 minutes 53 seconds.
